Mining the Cosmic Rubble – astronomy lecture at NBPL

At 6:30 pm on Thursday, July 21st, the North Bend Public Library presents Mining the Cosmic Rubble: Hidden Gems from the Celestial Debris, a lecture by SWOCC astrophysicist Dr. Aaron Coyner.

NASA JPL Solar System Ambassador and Southwestern Oregon Community College physics professor, Dr. Aaron Coyner takes us on a journey to investigate our cosmic origins by studying smaller worlds like asteroids, comets, and meteors.

Dr. Coyner asks:

What do the remnants of our formation tell us about our past and possible future and about our planet? And what can these cosmic wanderers provide our modern science today? Join us to explore and learn from the lesser-known roads in the solar system.
